Frankfurt and Europe

– a remarkable success story –

Hardly any other city in Germany is as international as Frankfurt. There are currently about 180 different nations living here. Of the 750,000 inhabitants, every third person does not have a German passport.

This multinational history goes back much further. Among others, Italians, French, Dutch, Belgians, Poles and Englishmen all found a new home here stretching back more than 600 years ago. Each nationality brought new ideas and skills with them and the economic development of Frankfurt benefited enormously. Why these people came here, where they lived and what we owe them is all explained. You will see some well known Frankfurt landmarks in a totally different light after this tour!
